    GUNS AREN'T ENOUGH - POLS WANT BULLET CONTROL
    By DAN KADISON

    March 19, 2007 -- Getting guns off the street is not enough to stop violent crime, a group of lawmakers said yesterday.

    You have to stop the bullets, too.

    "For far too long we have ignored the relationship between bullets and gun crimes," state Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn), a former NYPD captain, said as he held a hollow-point slug. "We can no longer allow this item, this bullet, to be that silent partner."

    Adams said he was introducing legislation that would mandate the tracking of ammunition and force buyers to register the bullets they purchase.

    Adams was joined by state Sens. Malcolm Smith and Eric Schneiderman outside De Marco's restaurant in Greenwich Village, where a crazed gunman shot and killed a bartender last week before chasing down two auxiliary cops and murdering them in cold blood on the street.

    The killer, David Garvin, 42, was shot to death moments later by police. He was carrying a bag with nearly 100 rounds of ammunition. Cops later seized another 100 rounds in his apartment.

    One bill would permit the sale of bullets only to individuals who hold legal gun licenses that specify the type of ammunition being purchased. A second bill would require manufacturers to brand bullets sold in New York with a traceable code to help police track them during criminal probes.

    "If David Garvin did not have - as we believe he did not have - a permit for the gun he was carrying, he shouldn't be allowed to buy bullets," Schneiderman said.

    If I was in the ammunition manufacturing business I'd stop selling to any NY police agencies.

    Or at least if you DO have to invest in the equipment and time to serialize boxes of ammo, do it to the cops too :mamoru:

    That's such a ridiculous suggestion though. A traceable number on each casing (assuming they're smart enough to know they couldn't do it to the actual bullet) that would require a ginormous database that would need to be constantly updated. Not to mention people that reload, or someone that's smart enough to just throw someone else's cases on the ground. Or better yet, the criminal that would just go to his out of state hook up to buy bullets instead of getting them at the store.

    The stupidity of politicians never ceases to amaze me.

    Or they could even...OMG....pick up their casings?!?!?!!?

    It's not even against the law to buy ammo from out of state, is it?

    If they do pass it, you NY guys better start picking up your brass at the range, wouldn't want to have someone pick up yours, then drop it off at a murder or robbery scene

    Not sure how they would accomplish that. Bullets deform and get messed up when they hit things. Cases can be collected or different ones deposited.

    How dumb.

    does it ever occur to these pulsating morons that criminals dont follow the law and register??? They are neutering the innocent public and the muggers and robbers will still do what they want

    Do you think DL #'s will be sufficient or will they have to go for full social security number?

    Sounds like an opportunity to submit, on paper, registration forms for every bullet individually in one's household.

    Perhaps a demonstration of the idiocy of this would get people's heads back the right way.

    200 rounds. Heh, that's a nice, mild day on the trigger. Love how the "unbiased media" makes it sound like the guy was John Rambo.

    or what would happen when i shoot my garand at the range. i mean sometimes it'll eject a casing 20+ feet and I just can't find the damn thing. ok and lets pretend the casing is serial #'d to me or whatever, someone comes along later, finds the casing, reloads it, uses it in another weapon, and kills someone. now i'm the criminal even though I'm not the person that killed someone else

    I think these things are cyclic.

    Every six months or so some moron politician or brady bunch nut has the same idea.

    I think someone in the background who has a clue pulls them aside and warns them that such an idea is unfeasible but they go ahead anyway...

    "Hey I tried" :dunno:

    so if someone steals your bullets and then shoots you with them, is that suicide?
